What to expect
Board your tour vehicle upon hotel pickup in Cancun or the Riviera Maya and relax during the drive to the Río Secreto Nature Reserve, located just 5 minutes away from Playa del Carmen. Be welcomed by the reception staff and watch an introductory video before a 15-minute transfer takes you into the reserve. On arrival, get suited with equipment and receive a safety briefing. Then it's off to your adventure. Ride a bicycle, rappel into a cave, and walk on trails that transport you to the Maya underworld known as xibalbá. Use your Río Secreto Plus admission ticket for access to the Dry Route, which takes you into the Room of Peace (Salón de la Paz) for an incredible light and sound show on the stalactites and stalagmites. Feast on a regional buffet lunch with nonalcoholic drinks. You'll have time to rest before return transport to your hotel.

This is absolutely a "don't miss" experience if you are in the Playa Del Carmen or Cancun area.

For our family of 4 (two adults and two girls, 13 and 7), we choose the basic package plus transportation. This worked out well, as everything was taken care of for us. From picking us up in downtown Playa, to helping us in the park, and getting us safely back, it was perfect.

Many, many highlights, but some include:

- The thousands of butterflies along the (bumpy) road
- Our excellent guide, Karina
- The amazing cave and *cold* water
- Seeing what pitch black really means!
- A nice meal to end the day

The nature park and caves have been very carefully preserved, and our guide Karina did a fantastic job of explaining the cave formation, animal life, and geological highlights.

All in all, it was amazing!

The cave was even more amazing than we ever could’ve imagined. Our tour guide, Angel was very knowledgeable, personable, and funny. He was always eager to help and safety was a priority. In my opinion, it wasn’t dangerous or difficult, although you had to be aware of the rocks. The photographer, we didn’t catch his name, was so nice and friendly. This was an epic adventure that I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone!

The true gem of Yucatan

So you are in Cancun or Riviera Maya area and looking for things to do outside of your hotel? Don't think twice and schedule a guided tour at Rio Secreto. It is a must visit place when you are in the area!

My wife and I had a very short trip to Cancun and my wife was dying to see some caves which I was not too crazy about. I always considered myself a bit of claustrophobic so going to a cave was not my #1 item on the list when I am in Cancun ;-) Let alone cave filled with water... However, we decided to give it a shot and I am very glad we did. We were joined by three other family members so it was a total of 5 of us.

We got picked up by an amazing driver in a Rio Secreto van. It took us a little over an hour to get to the destination from Hotel Zone (with some traffic along the way). The driver was awesome - he was jamming some of my favorite tunes by Queen, The Doors, Quiet Riot, Audioslave, Aerosmith, AC/DC so the trip from our hotel went by pretty fast ;) When you are leaving the van, don't forget to tip your driver!

Once we got to Rio Secreto, we got our wristbands and got assigned to a tour guide Anna. Anna took us to the dressing rooms where we were provided all of the necessary equipment (hard hat with flash light, wet suit, life vest, and water shoes). You will have to take off your jewelry, leave your phone/camera in the locker, and shower before you go to the cave. Once we showered and got all of the necessary equipment, we started walking towards the cave. After about 5-7 minute walk you'' finally get to the cave. That's where you will build the best memories of your life.

Being 75 feet underground and seeing this majestic, 2.5 million old place in its pristine condition was mesmerizing. Anna told us the history of the caves, explained us how stalactites and stalagmites were formed in both English and Spanish. Then we swam through the river inside of the cave, admiring the cave and the beautiful millions year old formations. At times we had to work our way through between stalactites, which is easier said than done for someone who is 6' 4" like me. As I mentioned above I always considered myself a bit claustrophobic, but I had absolutely no problems being inside of the cave. In fact, I quite enjoyed it.

The best part was towards the end of the tour when we made our way to the cenote and Anna told us to turn off the lights and admire the peace and quiet of the cave while floating in the water. Now that was a true divine pleasure. I felt like I was all alone in the center of the universe, surrounded by a deafening silence and pitch black darkness, as if I was floating through space.

It is important to mention that a professional photographer was taking pictures of us as we were moving through the cave. At the end we ended up with a total of 79 high quality pictures of our group of five people. We couldn't choose just one favorite picture, so we bought them all for USD 99, which is great price for good quality pictures that will bring memories alive over the years. I highly recommend you to buy at least some pictures, regardless of the price.

When we got out of the cave, we returned all of the rental equipment, showered, got dressed, and went to the buffet. Before we got to the table, we enjoyed a celebratory drink with Xtabentun liquor that was served by Anna. Buffet was included in the ticket price and we got to enjoy some typical Mayan food. Anna took care of us even in the buffet by bringing us our food, which was quite amazing. I loved Sopa de Lima and I highly recommend you to try it. Remember to fill out the survey/questionnaire about your experience and don't forget to tip your guide!

Once we were done with the food, we bought some souvenirs, took some pictures, and headed towards our van that took us back to Cancun. This time we had a different driver and it looked like everyone in the van was taking a nap after a fun day at Rio Secreto. At least I know I did, so the road back felt like 10 min trip ;)

I highly recommend you to visit Rio Secreto when you are in the area. You will greatly enjoy it. Don't worry if you are slightly claustrophobic, you will be ok. Enjoy your time in Mexico and in beautiful Yucatan Peninsula! I will be back there very soon!

Underground River Proposal

Great tour including walking through a dry cave, repelling 40 ft, bike riding, and swimming through an underground river. The tour guide Aaron helped me big time to set up a great proposal to my girlfriend. I was concerned about the logistics, but he helped me out and was a great communicator. Very memorable experience. Thank you Aaron!

Great adventure
We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into but we had blast. We did biking, repelling, hiking and cave swimming. It was an all day event and Victor our guide was amazing!! Highly highly recommend you do this excursion and ask for Victor! He was full of knowledge, fun and always had a little more adventure up his sleeve! Definitely lots of movement. The hike was fairly easy, the biking took it up a notch with hills and rocks, then the repelling was the finale! It was all super fun and we felt safe the whole time! The swimming in the cave was really enjoyable to explore and see the different formations!!

So incredible! Tour guide Aaron(request him u wont regret) was superb(and funny)! Well spoken in both English and spanish, which i quite appreciated as a bilingual tourist with an American english speaking friend! He had a great demeanor and was so informative! I was with my parents as well and it was a great outdoor experience that wasnt too strenuous on them, so they still had a leisurely experience while getting them to do something good for their health. It was so beautiful, i hope everyone enjoys the thoughtfullness put into this tour :)
